Feed them and they will come.
A church that has fed the hungry and homeless weekly in City Plaza for the past five years with­out city permission, now has the official go­ahead to continue.
Chicoan Dave Blau asked the commission not to give Orchard Church permission, and to actually shut down the feeding.

“The park is in crisis,” he said. By approving the application, Blau said the city was “sanctioning” the homeless and others who gather in City Plaza.

“City Plaza is full of homeless people,” he said, suggesting that the church use its own facility.

“The situation is out of control.”

He said homeless numbers in Chico were growing “because it’s a great place to hang out,” and there are services that attract them.

An infestation of bed bugs at the Torres Community Shelter is forcing temporary relocation of dozens of guests early next week in an attempt to erad­icate the pests.


Clark Pest Control is providing a three-day fumigation service at a significantly reduced cost of $11,500.

Since the late 1990s, bed bugs of the species Cimex lectularius and Cimex hemipterus have undergone a worldwide resurgence. These bed bugs are blood-sucking insects that readily bite humans. Cutaneous reactions may occur and can start out as small macular lesions that can develop into distinctive wheals of around 5 cm in diameter, which are accompanied by intense itching. Occasionally, bullous eruptions may result. If bed bugs are numerous, the patient can present with widespread urticaria or eythematous rashes. Often, bites occur in lines along the limbs. Over 40 pathogens have been detected in bed bugs, but there is no definitive evidence that they transmit any disease-causing organisms to humans. Anemia may result when bed bugs are numerous, and their allergens can trigger asthmatic reactions. The misuse of chemicals and other technologies for controlling bed bugs has the potential to have a deleterious impact on human health, while the insect itself can be the cause of significant psychological trauma. The control of bed bugs is challenging and should encompass a multidisciplinary approach utilizing nonchemical means of control and the judicious use of insecticides. For accommodation providers, risk management procedures should be implemented to reduce the potential of bed bug infestations.

Not only are there more bed bugs about in North America in Europe, but more of them appear to be carrying two types of superbugs - methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium (VRE)- bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and very hard to treat when there is an infection.

NFLPA might recommend postponing Buccaneers-Eagles game after third Bucs player infected with MRSA
